Hey EM-sters... lots of folks have Top 5 lists of the EM's they own and/or rate highly. But how about the Top 5 you would like to acquire next?

Pretty sure mine would be...

1. Expo
2. Solids N' Stripes
3. Big Day
4. See Saw
5. 8-Ball (middle-pop '66 version)

#2 1 year ago

Queen of Hearts, Four Corners, Treasure Chest, Universe, Line-Up

#3 1 year ago

I owned a Straight Flush in the past, which has a very similar layout to Expo. Great game, but I couldn't get the thought out of my head that I basically owned a watered down version of Expo. That left lane back up to the top of the playfield was always damn hard to make!

--

Not in any particular order:

1. Spooksville
2. On Beam
3. Abra Ca Dabra
4. El Dorado
5. Surfers (?) --> I'm not terribly picky, but I really like those Ted Zale Bally single player games.

#4 1 year ago

Old Chicago
Hot Tip
Kings and Queens
King of Diamonds
Joker Poker

#5 1 year ago

Pretty much the same as always...

Queen of Diamonds
Royal Guard
Grand Prix
Riverboat
North Star (I would never pay what this game typically goes for, but after playing it a bit more in Austin, and being showed some neat tricks on it, I like it a lot more than in the past, and it would be a good 'skills' game for me to own for a while.)

#6 1 year ago

Gemini
Fast Draw
Abra Ca Dabra
Aztec
hmm...maybe grand prix?

#7 1 year ago

Space Ship
Atlantis
Surfer
Neptune
Mars Trek

#8 1 year ago

1) Nags
2) Abra Ca Dabra
3) Strange World
4) Derby Day
5) Joker Poker EM

But pretty much priced out on each of those, so will be sticking with whatever I find cheaply on CL for the foreseeable future.

#9 1 year ago

Not saying these would be keepers in the long run but for various reasons (always poor condition, just a bit too much etc.), I never added them to the mix:

Magic City
On Beam
Lawman
Hot Shot (building one from parts)
Drop A Card

(I reserve the right to change my mind!)

#10 1 year ago

Out of space right now but forgetting that.....

1. Hawaiian Beauty 1954
2. Frontiersman 1955
3. Strange World
4. Atlantis
5. World Champ

#11 1 year ago

I honestly don't need any more, but I'll list ones that might tempt me-

Thunderbird
Beat The Clock
8-Ball
Skyway
Fun House

#12 1 year ago

I own pretty much all my favorites. Almost. Eventually you get tired of some. Here is my want list:

Majorettes
Hearts & Spades
Rock Star
Rancho
Jigsaw

Quoted from Frax:

North Star (I would never pay what this game typically goes for, but after playing it a bit more in Austin, and being showed some neat tricks on it, I like it a lot more than in the past, and it would be a good 'skills' game for me to own for a while.)

So true!

Here is a video of Trent demonstrating mad EM skills on North Star.

#14 1 year ago

North Star
Fireball
Grand Prix
Surf Side
Joker Poker

But this list could change depending on what stimuli I encounter five minutes from now.

#15 1 year ago

I have no room, but here are 5 I'd like to own..

Sonic Faces
Flip a Card
Recel Lady Luck
Zaccaria Combat
Capersville

#16 1 year ago

A Gottlieb "300" (with a very nice backglass).

That's pretty much it for now as I have have plenty of EM game projects still awaiting my attention.

#17 1 year ago

North Star
Joker poker
Abra ca dabra
Atlantis
Surf champ

#18 1 year ago

Dang that is a tough question especially because I already have managed to land a lot of my dream EMs.

The two that I am actively looking for are Teacher's Pet and Dodge City. I would also like an Oklahoma just because of the cool layout.

I will mention the rare Canada Dry. Hoping some day Wade make playfields and I can convert my Target Alpha.

The fifth one would rotate on a daily basis. For today it would be Orbit.

#19 1 year ago

Only looking for one last game/EM. Ballys Bigfoot. Anyone got any leads?

#20 1 year ago

Pretty much "Over" EM but still want a Bally 4 Million BC. I would buy a Big Valley or a Wiggler in the mean time.
Just not actively seeking any EM, but if I fall over a deal?.....

#21 1 year ago

Jungle Queen
Hot Tip
Mata Hari
Hang Glider
Fireball

#22 1 year ago
Quoted from Dayhuff:

Ballys Bigfoot.

I have a Friend with Hercules, but Big Foot's an EM!
Where in the Hell have I been?
Having (I believe) the other Gottlieb true 2 player Add-a-Balls
from the 60s, have an eye open for Pleasure Isle.
All the others on my once before wanted list I have acquired..

#23 1 year ago
Quoted from Mopar:

Where in the Hell have I been?

I'm not sure but I already have the Hercules and the Bigfoot glass so I'm partially there.

#28 1 year ago

#29 1 year ago

Star Jet
Evel Knievel EM (love the spinners)
Cow Poke
Grand Prix

#30 1 year ago

I'd snag one of those in a heartbeat if I could find one.

#36 1 year ago
Quoted from o-din:

Maybe Kenney will sell his?

Seriously though it is a super cool looking game. I'd put it on my list but I've never seen one in real life.

If we can get him while he's still alive.

I've never seen a Keeney "Arrowhead"either. It's on my wishlist as well.

Then you have to visit the Pacific Pinball Museum
as they have the only one that i have seen and played.

#43 1 year ago

A few classics I'd like to add

Fire Queen
Jumping Jack
Big Brave
Big Shot

I would love to get out there. The warehouse collection is just mind blowing (partially thanks to you, I believe). I'm unfortunately on the other coast.

#45 1 year ago

Star Jet
Gemini
Strange World
Atlantis
Centigrade 37

#46 1 year ago

Bow and Arrow
Aztec
300
Surf Champ
Buccaneer

#47 1 year ago

ive really been wanting a Williams skill pool

2 jolly joker preferred 3 coins second choice
3 captain card/high hand
4. centigrade 37
5 Reserve

although having a surf champ would prefer a surfer.
don't understand the love for 4 million bc. had that game in mint condition and ... never liked it/

#48 1 year ago
Quoted from SYS6:

A few classics I'd like to add
Fire Queen

In my case its memories,good ones at a Disco in Greensboro in the 70's. 4 Million BC was my office where the girls would visit,and when they didn't, I could act like the angry loner.
Plus its multi-ball EM.

#50 1 year ago

after collecting for 40 years can say that i have finally ticked off all on my want list.

now hanging my e.m. head in shame about to add 4 or 5 solid state pinballs.
